    I Still Have to Fight It Everyday In One Form Or Another

     The older I get the more used to it I get and have found many ways to help it, music, better foods, activities for my mind and body and the more I do the less it effects my life. Yet it never actually goes away.

    Not Depressed...

    Maybe I need to stop being so realistic all of the time. I'm not depressed, just resentful and angry. I don't feel sorry for myself. I'm angry because I'm not a faker but can't make it in the world or get my needs met. I'm not going to cry about my life. I just have to accept...

    Facedown In The Pit

    I know the title is about staying out of the Pit, but oops -- I'm already there. Facedown in the mire, slowly choking in the mud and death. Been here a while, the view isn't changing & I'm losing the strength to keep my head up.

    I feel as though I understand my depression much more. There's more regularity to it, and it seems, to me, to be a lot more 'rational' than my anxiety, if that makes sense?
